Recipe - Steam Salmon With Miso (Salted Soya Bean Paste)

The Norwegian salmon is a cultivated fish. Though not as good as the wild salmon, it is still a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids which is good for the heart. The Norwegian Seafood Council website has a lot of information and recipes.

One popular way to cook the salmon is pairing it with miso paste (salted soya bean paste). The salmon with miso can be steamed, grilled or panfried. My favourite slamon recipe is to steam it and top it with crispy soya beans.

For this recipe, the salmon steak is simply steamed with miso. It is just as tasty and healthy.

You can add a dash of pepper if you like.
